"15%, and i'm a small-business owner and i can't afford to pay health insurance for my employees right now." and in case you thought the healthcare debate was settled, it's not. only a portion of the reforms have been implimented. in 2014, states are scheduled to expand medicaid and set up health insurance exchanges to help people choose a plan. however, what will be included in coverage, known as "essential standard benefits," is still open for debate.
